A couple months ago I made dinner. Yes, that is how behind I am in blogging. :-) Anyway, I needed to something other than school, so I made dinner. Fettucini Alfredo with grilled chicken, a salad, and breadsticks, in case you were wondering.
At our house we use leftover pizza dough to make breadsticks. Our favorite recipe in Wolfgang Puck's. You can find it on Martha Stewart here. It makes fabulous pizzas too, by the way.
Dough on the paddle
Roll out your chilled dough and spread butter or olive oil lightly with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese and any of your other favorite Italian spices.
Use a ravioli roller knife or a pizza cutter to cut the dough into strips. Just like pizza, I cook the breadsticks on a stone at 400º F for around 8 minutes. It isn't a science, and it tastes so good. Go ahead and try it!
Eat them by themselves or with marinara straight out of the oven. Mmmmm.
